If there is anything that annoys pubs and restaurants with reviews like this is how the truth is bent. It was explained to you that there was a minimum spend on the Loyalty voucher which you had not achieved as per the Terms and Conditions of the system. I don't know what sort of "Service " you required sitting in... More

No better or worse than anywhere else for a spot of lunch. Staff were friendly but the food was not overwhelming. Admittedly, we ordered low maintenance food so I would be interested to return to see what is on offer for a more adventurous look into the menu.

Dear Louise,

Having just realised that you are the new owner of the Risley Guest House, I fear our booking for our usual rooms as not been passed on as we previously thought. We have been staying at the Risley Guest House for all of the time that Sarah ran the B&B and for two years when the previous lady to Sarah ran it as well. We stay for a weekend in April and November, with Sarah and when we last saw her in April, we asked for our usual two rooms for November. One room for my wife and I for the two nights of the !4th and 15th November, with the room with the single beds in it for two friends of ours for just the Saturday night -15th. We had also asked about them having separate rooms, but hadn't received an answer, we just thought that she was busy and being a one woman band, would eventually get around to answering, you must have found our note through your door on Monday, we were travelling down from Cheshire to Wiltshire and didn't have time to stay any longer, so my wife wrote the quick note.

could I ask you to check your reservations as to whether Sarah had passed on our requirements for rooms and you have us booked in (hence why you are showing full, no rooms available to a general inquiry) and we are hoping that we have rooms booked.

Could I ask you please, if we do have rooms booked for the weekend, as we all travelling into the areas from quite some distances and it would alleviate my worry that we have got rooms booked with you for the Friday (14th )and Saturday (15th) for Vivien and I, then just the Saturday (15th) for John and Tony, if you are short of rooms, they are willing to share, but it would need to be in the twin beds room.

Our telephone number is 01980 620494 or by email.

I await to hear from you in due course.

Yours sincerely

Mr Malcolm (Ted) Beech.
